Legal order, world disorder. A contribution towards the study of international law

José Manuel Pureza

The teaching and study of international law here and now are the object of a dual contextualization in this text. On the one hand, the author traces the unique trajectory of
the teaching and study of international law in Portugal, giving visibility to the divergence between the Portuguese substantive agenda in international law and the one that has been developed at the international level, as well as to the theoretical and practical deficits of the “national” agenda. On the other hand, the author situates these issues in the context of the dynamics of the transformation of international law itself, which has lead from traditional Westphalian law to the law of humankind.
